Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched an ambitious digital India Programme on July 1st 2015 at the Indira Gandhi Indoor stadium in the National capital. This initiative aims to strengthen the technical infrastructure for e-governance and e-commerce in the country, and also hopes to reach out to 250,000 panchayats, enlarge the scope of citizen delivery services and allow a greater participation of citizens as part of the Centre’s ‘Minimum Government and Maximum Governance’ approach. Digital India has been proposed to bridge the divide between digital “haves” and “have-nots”. This would ensure broadband connectivity at village level; improved access to services through IT enabled platforms, greater transparency in government processes and consumption of local content and host of other services. This programme is envisaged as a vehicle for growth. It is rightly said by the Mr. Modi that Information Technology plays important role to make India a digital country, in his words “India Today(IT) +Information Technology(IT)=India Tomorrow(IT)”. This paper gives an overview about digital India with its nine pillars i.e. Broad Band highway, Universal access to phone connectivity, Public internet access programme, E-governance, E-kranti, Information for all, electronic manufacturing, IT for job and early harvest programme including impact and challenges of Digital India Programme.
